If in doubt, make a bag...

It's my Mum's birthday on the weekend, so I made her (another) bag.  I honestly daren't look back over the birthdays, Christmases and Mother's Days to see how many she has already had from me, but today that's what I made…


It's another wing-it pattern, with rough measurements from a bag I use all the time, which I made this time last year.

Essex yarn-dyed linen, some John Lewis cotton/linen home deco and lined with a poplin ticket fabric from the local sewing shop…


I added some of the Essex linen to 1.25" cotton webbing for the handles, and a lovely 16" metal zip on the front pocket and it looks even better than anticipated.  Love it when that happens!


It took me a couple of hours, escaping the Minecraft/Clash of Clans aggro going on in the other room; oh please let the sunshine come out and the warm weather return soon!

  4. A girl can never have too many bags. Bags have been my go to present for a few years now. I have a friend that uses her bags to keep all of her individual cross stitching project in, they each have a separate bag and look lovely at the same time. x

  6. Looks fantabulous. A mother can never have enough bags. Even mine. Who doesn't even like bags. Until I make one then she either wants it or wants to borrow it!
